“The pieces of paper claiming ‘ownership’ of parts of the planet are legitimised by laws, authorities and states. The violence used to maintain their theft is thus also legitimised and miraculously ceases to be violence. It is now upholding the law. Protecting order. Morality is reversed to the extent that anyone resisting the violence of the thieves is themselves regarded as a violent criminal”.
Paul Cudenec, Forms of Freedom
It seems we are caught between theft/enclosure/oppression and the tragedy of the commons
